All About Woolen Rugs
by Guest on Jan 14, 2010
Rugs are well known for their flexibility, durability and some of them for their adaptability to the different seasons. One of the finest fabrics used for the area rugs is wool. Wool rugs are one of the finest floor coverings, they are known for their value of money, style, their different designs and varieties, beauty and even their longevity. Woolen rugs are being used since the ancient times. It is one of the durable materials used to make the floor coverings. There are many varieties of wool available in the market depending on the different breeds of the sheep. The quality of wool can be determined from the multiple factors like the age of the sheep, its health, the gender and the way in which the sheep has been nurtured.
Despite the different texture and the quality of the wool, there are number of styles out of which the wool rugs are made, so you will be tied up with loads of rugs from which you have to choose the best rugs which help you to beautify the look and the feel of your house. The rugs are made in the different regions of the world especially in U.S from where they are imported to the different parts of the world. However the rugs are differentiated based on their origin. Other popularly used area rugs are the Persian rugs which are mostly made in the Middle East. Rugs are also made in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Turkey and many other places in the world. However the origin from where the wool has been extracted does not directly determine the quality of the wool as well as the rug. The quality of the rugs is actually dependent on the way the rugs are made, the type of the wool which is been used, the design, the style in which it is been made, and above all the quality of the dyes which are used. While you are purchasing a rug it is quite obvious that you will definitely consider the price of the rugs but let me tell you that the rugs are one of the most cheapest and economical option than any other option of flooring.
You have the different options to select from like the wool rugs or the machine. You will also have to make a choice as to you are going to use the rugs made of 100% wool, or a blend of wool with other synthetic materials. However the synthetic versions of the rugs are quite easy to clean and even cheaper than the pure wool rugs. But there are many people who love to go for the rugs with high concentration of woolen rugs.
